I have a 1998 Chevy Metro LSI 1.3L with manual 5 speed. I need to put a new clutch in it. What is the best stock, OEM replacement clutch kit for the money?

It is really the OEM, our cars came with them stock and the clutch is very well built, I've read it can handle 150hp. So that's almost twice what your LSi is making at the crank, when new.

Is the "exedy daikin...really the OEM" clutch?

Had picked up somewhere that LUK was OEM clutch & stock "clutch is very well built". Are the LUK clutch kits worth a dammit? Found LUK 04-124 clutch kit priced from $99-$178

Was surprised how many different clutch kits are sold for this app.
